[Attn: Ausra, Connor "Shield", Rhodes Guild hall, Open]

"Here's your order!" Dopple beamed cheerfully as she placed several mugs of beer in front of several members of Rhodes. "Drink up, and don't forget to tip <3" She said with a bit of a twirl and giggle while balancing the rest of the mugs still on the tray.

With a bit of a pep in her step she went about her work, "You big guys are next!" she let out with mirth and enthusiasm. This outfit is super cute. Dopple thought happily as she tried to pay attention to the four dueling areas, I just wish the pay was better. Obram and Amara had stuck with her through out everything, but this job wasn't going to be enough.

At this rate I'll never get to afford to buy the old guild hall. Dopple kept her cheery face on as she took money from a leaving customer. " <3 Kick some butt and come visit us again! <3 " Dopple said with a little bow as the man left, he'd had a quest he and his friends had to do tomorrow. It seemed like he was the responsible sort since it was still early, just mid-afternoon.

Shield was sitting up on his throne looking imperious as he watched over three of the four matches going on. He was the final arbitrator of the battle board, and Dopple thought that she might borrow the idea for Shining Eclipse when they built their Guild hall. She'd been here two weeks and she had figured out how the system worked.

"Soooo hot." Dopple said with a bit of distaste, pinching her bodice and flapping it a bit to air out her chest. It had started out such a nice day, and many of the windows had been thrown open to let in fresh air for just that reason. She caught Shield motioning to stop the fight, but Dopple noticed that this sudden heat wasn't natural. She was soaking through her outfit, and the cause of it was walking purposefully through the room like she owned the place.

In your faces! Dopple screamed mentally in smug joy against her neigh saying Guildmates. Cha-ching! her inner thoughts caressing the sudden appearance of Ausra like a hungry cougar looking at a nice young stud that had just walked in. "Break!" She said lifting off her apron and putting it behind the counter as she made a quick break to the storeroom where her stuff was.

She shifted the key to the locker out into her hand from where she had hidden it and quickly turned the lock. "If I don't hurry, I'll lose my chance." Yanking open the door, she sent one of her arms into the rucksack forcing open the top and started to suck up her weapons and toys. Kunai and bottles flowed through her arm then into her stomach as her slime shifted them out of sight. From her back a tentacle stretched out of her waist, slithered over to a water barrel and drank hungrily.

She was worried since Ausra was like the worst person ever to fight. This outfit was already ruined thanks to her heat and she hadn't even started fighting. She had started to sweat through it, but now with the extra water she was soaking up to replenish herself the poor thing was starting to get strained a bit as she thiccened up.

Slamming her locker closed she ran and threw open the door to the storeroom and was suddenly assaulted with an ungodly heat. Shield and Ausra where already fighting. Obram and Amara would eat there words when she swooped in and claimed the bounty on their former guildmate. The idea to hang out at this guild hall had been Dopple's idea, after all Obram had gotten word that several Guildmaster's were being targeted by DA. Connor had been putting up a good fight, but Dopple still thought it likely he was going to get overpowered by Ausra. If nothing else Ausra could play out this as an endurance match, a few of the closest members would likely pass out from dehydration if it went on for too much longer.

[Attn: Ausra, Dopple, Rhodes Guild hall, Open; Collab with Leah]

Ausra has said nothing as she is slammed into the bar, looking at him angrily.  However, multiple walls have appeared around her, one on each side and even one above as he has risen the ability to shift her position.  The walls press inwards against her, dragging her across the floor and out of the building.  Her hands move out, pressing into those barriers and she burns them with intense heat so as to escape.  Connor clearly didn't want her within the Guild Hall, but that was just fine by her.

As he steps out into the open area before the Guild, Ausra has burned through the barrier directly between them and a spout of lava has headed towards his head.  With his arms crossed before his neck and chest, his hands tighten into fists before him and a shield pops up and takes the blast just as it begins to melt.  Lava falls onto the ground before him and Connor looks down for just a moment, realizing that he will surely need to watch his step.

She came out of the storeroom and immediately took inventory of the situation at hand. Shield was purposefully walking out in full command of the situation after he'd used his shields to scoop Ausra up like a kid throwing out a bug from the sandbox. "Welllllll it is his sandbox." Dopple said as she watched Shield throw up a barrier to block Ausra's lava, it did make a cool fiery silhouette around Connor. Noticing the wrecked bar she cringed a bit realizing she was likely out of a job either way. "Why can't god's play nice?" The Guildless Master herself sighed.

Many of the guild members were slumping against walls and didn't yet show a startling desire to push past their Guildmaster and into the line of fire. Dopple ran forward as she pointed her outstretched hand towards the nearest barrel, the slime literally stretching out to envelope it and carry it with her as she ran towards the largest window she could find . Looking back towards her hand, she gauged the size of it and double checked the size of the window. "Excuse me! Cutie coming through!" Dopple said as she ran and jumped through the window, narrowly missing clubbing someone in the head with the barrel as it followed after her.

Dopple saw several members of Rhodes climbing through windows too to catch a good seat of the fight, likely following my example. Now outside, she didn't have to worry about a building falling down over her head. Thankfully it was also cooler out here thanks to the open air, but it had also reduced her options to ambush Ausra. Puu~~~


Ausra's face lit up, the veins within her looking bright orange, as though her fiery hot fury were personified through her flesh.  Her eyes burned with the embers as steam began to rise off of her body.  More heat emanated from her and Connor's wall was already rising again before her.  He had no intention of letting her get close--smart.  They've fought before; they know each other's weaknesses.  She holds out her hand, melting this wall, too.  It takes almost no time, just like the others.

Ausra says, "You'll lose this if this keeps going.  I'm just too hot for you and way out of your league.  Give me the key and I can just leave this be."

Connor's walls are now standing--all of them the same thickness, height, and length.  There are around ten of them lifted from the ground, all risen as Ausra just stands there and talks.  Her vision of him is mildly blocked, because the walls between them are jagged, placed at odd angles and locations with no clear path.  If she is uncertain of his plan, she shows no concern of it.

Connor replies, "If I recall correctly, I dumped you, so let's jot that down.  If you were so certain of your league, you wouldn't be trying to talk me out of a fight."

Ausra was talking a mad game, and how easily her hand melted that shield like butter made it Damn convincing. Shield was just throwing up barriers every which way and it blocked her line of attack, but Dopple realized that if Ausra threw lava all the shields would send it every which way, hitting more and more shields and fucking up any attempt to aim correctly. Apparently Shield wasn't paying her any dam...... "B-b-boyfriend?!" Dopple stuttered, as she realized this was like one of those drama novella brought to life.

Ausra had been calm--irritated, but calm. Now, however, she isn't. She roars, her arms outstretched and her knees bent as she began to blast her way forward towards Connor as quickly as she can. His walls are only half melted from the tunnel that she makes to get to him and she just pulls out her own shield, the metal already red hot as she charges with the rage of a wild beast.

Connor's own shield rose up before him and he charges back towards her, as well. Now, the two were charging at each other, shields before them for a matching shield bash that either look prepared for--but her shield is scorching and his is a magical shell. The two shields meet and steam rises up as Connor's kit, crystalline shield cracks. Clearly, more mana had gone into the creation of this one as he pushes her backwards, their forces pushing against each other, remaining stalwart against her attempt to knock him away or prone. Having pressed her back two, no three steps, a wall met Ausra's back and she was pinned.

Unfortunately the drama rich dialogue didn't continue and they went right at it, certainly hot but not in the sexy fantasy way that daydreams were made of. Disappointed at the wasted moments, Dopple started to spin around and around in a crazy pirouette over and over to gather momentum like a green hyper active top. Having gathered enough speed, she shifted the direction and threw the barrel into the air above both Ausra and Shield, letting her arms stretch and then yank her into the air towards the barrel as her arms acted like giant green rubber-bands. As her arms returned to normal and she rose towards the peak of the arc, Dopple gritted her teeth and performed a flip in the air straining her body to sling the barrel in a circle around her and down towards the ground.

Her slime evaporating from the leading edge from the intense heat emanating by Aursa. "Slime Moe Hammer!" Dopple screamed as she brought it down like a sledgehammer at a fiery red cockroach.


Both Ausra and Connor look up as they hear screaming, both confused. A barrel is coming down and Ausra still hasn't burned through the shield or wall through completely. Connor teleports away from Ausra to avoid the attack as the barrel lands upon Ausra and explodes, a cloud of steam and smoke rising around her with a loud hissing sound.

Connor looks over at the strange girl with confusion as his shield vanishes and he magics up another one, "What the hell are you doing? I told everyone to stay out of this!"

Dopple feels the barrel hit and then feels her hands blow apart from the steam explosion. She can feel part of her body evaporating as she passes through the intense steam and heat still around Ausra. Lucky for Dopple her slimebody absorbs the impact with the ground and she uses some of it to bounce away at an angle back into the air. "Kicking Ausra's cherry red ass!" She answered as she landed a few feet away reforming her arms and hands by rearranging the extra slime she had from earlier. "And sorry but I don't answer to you, no offense."

Dopple shifted the items inside her body to get what she needed. The fog hadn't completely dissipated but it wouldn't last long. In one hand Dopple struck the tiny torch into life producing a tiny intense flame that she used to light the rocket in her other hand. It soared into the air, whistling loudly before exploding in a loud roar of color and light that fizzled away. "Get ready." Dopple warned as she jumped away from where she had been to avoid a face full of lava that probably would come her way. "Give me an opening. Pretty please <3 Shield <3"

(CLOSED COLLAB BETWEEN ME AND JERRILEAH7)

(WHITE CROSS, WHITECKER)

Ham and his sister approached the...'figure', the crowd parting like the red sea around them the moment they recognized their guild colors; the moment they saw Ham's size. His intimidating stature was far from what he had been aiming for with his physical image, but it was a pleasing side benefit.

"It seems we missed quite a show," Ham smiled at them, quirking an eyebrow. "Though I suppose this does give us a chance for introductions."

He stopped before them reaching out his hand for them to shake. They were tall- not as tall as him, few people were, but a bit taller than his sister- who had managed to calm herself and regain her cool, catlike demeanor.

"I am Hamlet Napolitano, of Infinity Edge. Though most call me Ham.  And this is-" He was cut off.


July whisked around her brothers side, her long, deft fingers outstretching out alongside his.

"July." She purred, her voice a pleasent rumble, a smile dancing across her face like a knife as she took a moment to admire all of this persons features. Their hair, their eyes, their cheeks. They were tall, that was good. Taller than her? Even better.


Nadleeh takes July's hand and then Ham's, her cloak hiding her smile as she politely greets them, "A pleasure. I am Priest Thessalonica of the Viorian Church and White Cross and this is Father Raist of Whitaker. We apologize for any hostility you may have received from the citizens."

Father Raist also offers his hand to both, "Welcome. Infinity Edge! I even heard one from Rhodes was here. We've never had so many magi here at once."

Ham shakes both their hands, smiling politely. "Don't worry, thus far, we have met no hostility. At least, none overt. The rest of my group is off helping around town, hopefully they haven't met any trouble." His gaze shifts to Father Raist. "Yes, we do. We have six of ours and one from Rhodes with us. Quite the merry little group-"

July managed to keep herself from quivering at the sound of that voice. Mmmm, she wanted to lick that voice. Sadly it left her with no better idea of the person before her's gender- but the huskiness of it left her with goosebumps. And god their hands were soft. Softness was good, at least far what their hands would hopefully be getting up to.

"Hmmm, don't worry about it. At least they haven't broken out any pitchforks. But, as my brother said, we must have missed quite the show." She took another sauntering step towards 'Priest Thessalonica', not quite in their personal space, but closer than Ham had ventured. "Tell me, Priest Thessalonica-" The name ran off her tongue, cradled in the slight tinge of an accent that lingered in July's voice. "Are those in your fold prevented from....external fraternization?" Her eyed dragged up the figure before her, taking all of it in. "Out of idle curiosity, of course." Her smile finally flashed her teeth as she gazed at the holy man-maybe-woman with the same intensity of a cat looking at a very colorful bird.


Ham looked back to Father Raise apologetically. A dejected shrug removed him from being able to do anything about his sisters....interests.

Father Raist blinks and Nadleeh blushes, her speech softening as she stutters, "Uh-uh, we, as in, the um, the Viorian Church does not hold regulations regarding fra-well, anything of such natures."

Father Raist cuts in to assist her, "Sex is a natural thing."

Nadleeh's voice rises suddenly, "I think we should start letting people pick their beds. You two may wish to get your choices in while you can."

July tilted her chin up flirtaciously, looking at the priest through lidded eyes; her tone encouraged by the two's words.

"Mmm," She notes Raist and Thessalonica's voice with a noise of acknowledgement before fixating her words back on the taller one. "I assume yours is off the table? Or am I going to have to....climb my way up to that." Her wicked, flirtacious smile  and closeness to the other persons body built to fluster as she shifted ever so closer- not close enough to violate personal space quite yet. But close enough to smell the peppery fragrance of the womans hair.


"July-" Ham interjected lowly, his voice not overly loud but rather a verbal attempt to pull his sister away from trying to seduce a Preist. He looked to Father Raise apologetically. "I'll work on getting my people set up. Thank you, Father. And you, Priest Thessalonica." He nodded to both of them before looking to his sister. "Behave." He said flatly, quietly, so only she could hear him as he brushed past her. She gave him no response, but he knew she heard him.

The freedmen begin filtering in, Sifa plopping happily on a bed off to the corner, the older woman sticking close to her. One by one they picked their beds, careful to try to leave some for their 'saviors'.


Nadleeh speaks awkwardly before rushing off, "I am currently unattached, Miss July. Well, I - I need to get to work. I have a book delivery. If you'll excuse me."

July opened her mouth to respond only to be cut off by the target of her attraction briskly rushing off. She blinked, feeling briefly dejected before brushing it off as jitters.
"Was it something I said?"July called after her, watching her leave before looking back to Father Raist, and giving him a shrug.


Father Raist holds in his laughter, "Priests, especially those like her whom are exorcists, aren't used to... Advances. She'll adjust, Miss."

July raises her eyebrows. A woman? That was a woman? The most attractive woman she'd ever laid eyes on? July rarely met a woman taller than her...she couldn't say she didn't like it. By 'like it' she meant find it insanely attractive but she didn't wish to be vulgar. Well, just yet.

"Priestess Thessalonica, huh." She looked in the direction the woman had disappeared to. Perhaps White Cross wasn't going to be so bad...

Whitecker Town/Church - 3h~3h30 PM


**This is a collab between me, Leah and Juliet !**

Ryushi helped mostly outside to lead the people and had missed Nadleeh teleporting in. He also mobilized his medics close in case people would need medical attention as he had no idea what to expect from the group. But he was sure maybe some could perhaps be sick or else. When he came back closer to the church, he notice the people of the IE group that seemed to be helping out with some of the setup as well as their own cargo. Smiling at the sight, that smile quickly changed to a face of discouragement as one of his guild member informed him  of a bit of a commotion that happened not long ago within the church, but then heard that Nadleeh was back. He was curious on how she was and so he headed there as soon as he could. Somehow he couldn't see neither Ham nor July.... well at least until he went inside the place and noticed that July seemed to be hitting on Nadleeh.

Ryushi was a bit lost at word, wasn't sure what to say, but he just stood there by the entrance and waited for them to be finish in silence to not interupt.... although it was really because he was shocked from seeing July hit on Nadleeh. Did July have a side like Valentino or was it different and just sometimes. He hoped it was just sometimes, it looked like it anyways.


Eaden seemed to be mostly amused and curious on how the situation was going and was just chilling on Ryushi's shoulder enjoying the show.

It seemed July didn't give up even when Nadleeh left embarrassed and turned her down. Although he felt a bit bad for July from the turn down, he gave a soft smile to Nadleeh who was coming his way. ''I'm glad you're back and your trip went smoothly. Welcome home Nadleeh. You mentioned books, I assume you found something ?'' He asked curious at the end.

Nadleeh nods, "I had eight. Have. Um, have eight books. They are at the altar."

She whispers, "I think we need to decide now if we're letting other guilds in on this.  Our research, I mean."

Ryushi smiles widely. ''That is good to hear, we found some books that were close, but still too far from what we're looking for. If those are even closer to what we need then this is a relief.  '' He did a face of don't worry about it. ''July and Ham knows, but I'm not sure if the rest of their comrades do. They already offered to help, but they are not fully familiar with the magic we're looking for. '' He did a sign toward Ham and July to invite them over, giving a little apologic face to Nadleeh since he knew the flirting might go on, well possibly.

Ham saw Ryushi walk in as he was aiding the older woman get situated, trying to procure her extra pillows for her bad....leg? She was gesturing to her leg. He smiled at her, quickly explaining to another White Cross magi what she needed as Ryushi beckoned for him, thanking them profusely. He joined up with the two of them, nodding at them with a smile.

"I caught only the tail end of what you said- I explained the situation to my guild mates as best I could; none of them seem to know about it either. I sent them off to help the rest of your guild where hands or magic are needed. I hope that is acceptable." He gives an additional, friendly smile to Priest Thessalonica; hoping his sisters flirtations didn't scare them off of Infinity Edge forever.


"Welp," July saw Ryushi gesture for her, looking back at Father Raist. "Guess that's my cue to be a menace again. Take it sleazy, pops." She gave him a two fingered salute, she couldn't resist being playfully bad with the 'Father', clicking her tongue as a sound effect as she sauntered off and over to the group. If this Velori-whats-it religion was as relaxed as they seemed, she'd be sure to test it. She swung into the fold, leaning on her brothers shoulder once she was in close.

"So what can we do you for, boss man?" She looks over to Thessalonica, giving her a wink when she knew she was in her vision.


Ryushi smiled to Ham and replied ''It is no issue at all, I appreciate the help. But yes Nadleeh here....'' He said as he gestured toward her, nothing the fact that July just gave a wink toward Nadleeh. However he continued.  ''Found some books that may be giving us answers. I we do get them we might move later on tonight, I wanted to give a a heads up in case we do figure out something. I might need extra help when I do, but I'll let you know. For now try to rest a little bit when you can. ''

Nadleeh says, "I have to study the symbols. I found books with similar symbols to the one under the Guild. So, I think if we study that and the subject around them, we'll figure out, somewhat, what's going on."

Ham tapped his chin. "I've heard of wards being placed over buildings, but wards are usually at least known. Not to mention due to its size even when we figure out what's going on, the question then is do we even have the ability to do anything about it."

"Ye of little faith brother." July slapped his shoulder. "We have a cursebreaker and a fuckton of White Cross magi. We'll make it work. Or I could try to hunt down whoever or whatever did this and drag them back by their hair. Cause or symptom. We'll find a way."

"I think whoever or whatever did this is a bit beyond a power level that would make that remotely safe for you." He looked at his sister, who scoffed. "But please, Priest Thessalonica, if you require any assistance in your research, consider my sister and I at your disposal." He didn't have to avert his gaze from the priest to his sister to know she was giving them that 'look'.

''Yes I fear as much that the person who did this may be very powerful, this is also why if I were to do an operation I would be careful on the planning. I will assist Nadleeh for now and bring her to the small place I was at earlier for more tranquility. If you need us, we'll be over there. But I thank you for wanting to help again, it is really appreciated. We'll let you know if we need more help with the search, but I think you should both take some time to rest perharps. '' He said with a smile a bit of concern for the two. ''You both have been travelling a long way. Please make yourself at home.''

Nadleeh nods, "Let's hit the books, then. If we require assistance, we'll keep you two in mind, thank you.  Master Ryushi, I'll grab the books if you'll point me where to go."

Nadleeh then moves to thr altar, picking up the books in her arms with her arms, prepared to begin a lot of reading.

Ham nods appreciatively. "If you require my assistance I'll be about town, helping your Mages."

"And if you need me," As July spoke her eyes leveled solely on Priest Thessalonica, her voice still holding a flirtatious tinge. "I'll be  around." She shifted back onto one foot, bending a pleasing curve around her hip as she appreciatively watched her 'priest' leave with her guild master.

''Sounds good, thank you guys.'' Ryushi said toward them before turning back to Nadleeh. ''Follow me.'' He started walking toward the small place he was installed in.

Re: Guild Ties Role-Play

[Attn: Open; Whitecker Town]

Xiax was busy helping pass things down from the cart when Ham had found them. It appeared that they would be staying at the towns church and bedding down there. After letting them all know that they would be helping get the recently emancipated settled, and then they were free to aid the citizens with relief efforts. Xiax was about to get into the cart and help unload the meager supplies they had left but Ham had pulled him aside.

Ham had given him a pass to do as he wanted, understanding of Xiax's unique problems. Of course Xiax had managed to thank Ham before the man had to leave to supervise everything. The cart had already been unloaded of what meager things that the group had managed to bring with them, and the others had helped whomever seemed to need aid getting inside. All that left was Xiax, outside and alone to look up at the church with mixed feelings. Sleeping inside a church was a welcome and seldom patronizing place for those like him. However inside the place was going to be packed, and that posed a number of additional problems.

He stepped out of the way of people coming and going while resolving himself to having to find somewhere else to bed down. Casually walking into the town, Xiax was able to observe more closely the level of damage the town had sustained. There was many people coming and going, and any of them might be mages. WhiteCross had a large presence in Whitecker and due to the damages plenty of people were displaced into tents and temporary shelters. Xiax kept walking towards the river, going here and there towards any trees that weren't deep in peoples yards to grab loose twigs and sticks that laid on the ground. Slowly, the bundle in his arm began to grow as he made it towards the river. Here close to the river, tons of tents had been erected. It made sense, even animals were drawn to water.

Looking into the river, Xiax watched it for sometime without moving. He didn't see anything to catch, likely all the people had driven away any fish. He would even have settled for a frog or turtle, but they couldn't be found either. In the end he set his wickerpack down and dug into it to retrieve small pot. The surface was so new that he could easily see his reflection looking back at him, and it made Xiax drift into retrospective thought. Occasionally he would move his thumb over the smooth surface as it laid cupped in his hands, hands decidedly scared compared to it.

Still lost in retrospection, Xiax walked down to the river's edge. Leaning down, he filled it with water. "It feels like a lifetime." he said conveying his thoughts about the last two to three months. In many ways he was still the same resourceful person he had always been, but he wasn't exactly sure in what ways he had changed. There was the obvious ones like all the physical training back at the Guildhall, or going on a crazily dangerous missions where they saved people. Then again Ilyana would point out that he had been heroic the first time he had ever came to her attention. Even Ham would likely agree, pointing to the time Xiax had rushed in when the bandits had gotten the jump on him.

July.... July would understand what he was feeling, she seemed like the sort of person that would. Then again, July would probably do something to just cheer him up and make him stop all this reflection garbage. He couldn't stay here by the river, but wandering of outside of town didn't sound like a good idea either. On his way back to the church, Xiax found the town cemetery. Until yesterday he would have been fine going inside and bedding down somewhere, but now he knew that ghosts were a very real and visceral thing. So in the end he gave the place a wide berth, eventually finding himself back where he had started. The carts had been pulled around the back of the church and that was were Xiax decided he should head. The horses had been stabled somewhere else, otherwise he would have wanted to spend a few minutes petting them.

Instead he grabbed the rail and pulled himself up to sit on the back of the cart. He set his pack down, and moved the pot a safe distance away so he wouldn't bump it along with his faggot of tinder. Looking up at the sky, Xiax reasoned that there was still a few hours before sunset. Digging around his pack, he retrieved his poncho, his sewing kit and some scrap bits of clothing. The work of making new eyelets to add to the poncho was comforting and familiar. Grommets would be better, but he could reinforce the holes by stitching around the edges. It wasn't the fastest work, but that was the difference between rigging something and doing it right. If anyone came looking for him before nightfall, that's were they would find him. Working on modifying his god-awful poncho to make it even easier to use as a tent in the future.

{ATTN: Elizabeth, Reiza, Open }
Tavran Ruins Unknown
--

Reiza leans back on her right leg, her arms crossing before her as she looks from one indentation to the the next and wondering what they mean.  She doesn't know which one unlocks what, which is what makes things worse.  If they use the wrong lock, they could do something terrible...like turn off all the power or something.  Is that possible?

She says, "Okay, well.  You guys do your thing.  I'll be down here.  Just let me know what you find out."

"Yeah, I can bring people with me." Elizabeth says turning her heads towards Reiza. "It might be a good idea if we borrow that torch to see better while we are up there." Getting ready to open up her portal, Elizabeth heads over to Reiza waiting to get the torch.

“Go ahead and go topside.  I am going to stay down here and figure out this lock.”  Daisan tells Elizabeth.  His attention once again goes to the three locks.  “Red is usually a color of danger, but it is the only one that is showing any color at this time.”  He scratches his head.  He slowly places his key in the center indentation.


Reiza hands the torch over as she watches Daisan look at the lock with curiosity.  She waits for Elizabeth to vanish on top of the box and then Daisan presses his key into the central indentation--one of the two that were not lit up.  Just as he does so, the symbol beneath that indentation lights up, shining a bright green.

The room's metallic walls then light up--a bright, vertical line of neon white forming along the walls every now and again to give the room full view to each of them.  With a gasp, Reiza squints her eyes, shocked by the sudden brightness as it blazes against them.  She blinks, adjusting as best she can to the view.

The room is massive--it must be around forty feet in length and height.  Reiza circles the room, as there is a pathway around the mysterious, half-glass-like box at the room's center.  She circles the box entirely, ending back up before the three indentations where she had started.  There's nothing else here.  Just the box.  From what she could see, there was nothing in it.  Just emptiness.  Yet...there were the scratch marks.

Scratch marks...and the screeches that had come from here before.  As Elizabeth walked atop the box, Reiza noticed that it carried her weight well--it did not bend, it barely clattered or clicked from her footsteps.  In fact, her footsteps sounded surprisingly dull on its surface, hinting that perhaps, the material is not glass, afterall.

Elizabeth walks around on top of the container. Looking down into the container she finds nothing, the container looking empty and dead inside. She walks around up there for quite some time. Looking down to see if she could possible find something. She had a feeling that she wouldn't find anything from how long it was taking her to look. In the end she went back through her portal. "I couldn't see anything in the container. Though it might have been due to how tall the container is. Maybe whatever was in there died from not having any food."


“Assuming it was at one time alive.  We don’t even know how long this has even been here.  The ruins above were considered ancient, and this was under that.  The technology though surpasses even ours.  Which makes me wonder what happened to the people.”  Daisan takes his pendant out of the keyhole.  He then places it in the other unlit one.


Reiza has nothing to say upon Elizabeth's observations, unsurprised by them.  She waits for Daisan's input, listening to his words, nodding her agreement.  His words only echo her thoughts from earlier.  True things for sure--the age of this place will remain an unknown for some time, to be sure.  Especially with all of these materials that she has never before seen in her life.  They look....almost alien.  Just like the symbols.

She watches as Daisan moves the pendant from one to the next--another of the unlit.  She jumps back as the symbol beneath it begins to flash on and off--it's a brilliant red and yellow, moving from one to the next.  A small sound is heard--a brief swoosh as the box at the center of the room is opened, the top sheet of glass-like material sliding to the side and lowering to the box's side.

Reiza blinks, surprised at the sound and wondering what is going on--but the screeching sound as the new scratches are formed against the glass towards that exit brings chills down Reiza's spine.  "Shit," she utters as the scratches are now being dug into the glass.  On the outside.  Whatever invisible thing that is within the box is now outside of it and they can't see it.

Reiza instantly calls out as her hands raise up to use her magic, "Pull in to me!  Now!"

As Elizabeth and Daisan move closer to Reiza, which wasn't too hard, since they were already pretty close, Reiza's magic activates as she says, "Regis Defense!"

The red glow in her eyes and the symbol at her feet shines brilliantly as a shell begins to form around them--a small, runic box that slowly builds downwards from their heads towards their feet.  Before the magical box closes, Reiza calls out in pain as she feels the immense pain of the claws that dig in to her right calf, tearing away her flesh.  She watches in horror, trying her most to keep building the box as the next claw digs at Elizabeth's thigh, ripping into her flesh, as well.

Finally, the box is closed and Reiza falls to her feet, wanting to cry.  Instead, she grits her teeth, glaring at the outside, looking for the demonic creatures that are somehow invisible.  Fucking animals!  She curses them under her breath, clearly infuriated.

Elizabeth feels tears welling up in her eyes. Pain coursing through her leg and thigh. Blood flowing down her leg. Nothing. There was nothing she could do. Unless she wanted to let the... the creatures in. Creatures being the only word she can think of to call whatever was on the outside of the barrier. She goes to sit down hissing as she moves her thigh that got slashed. Elizabeth sits their trying to come up with some kind of plan as well as a way to stop the blood from flowing down her leg.


Daisan watches the light changes to blinking red.  “Oh shit, this is not…”  was all he got out before he heard the swish.  It is followed by the screeching against the glass.  Reiza commands to come to her.  She activates her magic.  He watches a box shaped shield form in front of them.  He only hopes that it can form in time.  They cannot see the creature, but it can still do damage as both Reiza and Elizabeth are injured.

He takes out the bandages from his bag.  “We need to take care of the injuries.  This is not a good situation?  How can we fight something we cannot see?”  He moves Reiza’s pants leg up to check on her leg since she was closer to him. "I will get to you next Elizabeth."

(GROUP A COLLAB)

Ilyana finally packs up after having her small lunch, putting her things back into her bag and taking her time as she watches the others to be sure that they each look well rested.  She smiles with encouragement at each one, making sure that they understand that there is no rush.  They've been climbing for hours--the last thing any of them needed to do was rush.

Still, the shade from the crevasse was a welcoming relief, and of course, there was more to it than that.  As the others were headed to the cliff's edge again, all of their lunches now packed, Ilyana shook her head as she tied her sword back to her waist once more.

"Oh, no.  We're going into this cave."  Ilyana clarifies, "Do any of you have claustrophobia?"

Sylmeria had been famished, allowing herself a couple of extra sandwiches like a glutton. She felt an ache all over her body, most pronounced in her hands and forearms. This was beyond anything she'd done in years. She felt a small smile for the briefest of instances. The ache felt good. She missed the days of active play in her younger days.

As the others ate, she remained silent, having nothing to say, really, and just waited for Ilyana to call the break done. It wasn't long until Ilyana did just that, and as she prepared herself for another ascent, the guildmaster informed them that they'd be going into a cave she hadn't noticed. Oh, how observant she was. At Ilyana's query about claustrophobia, she shook her head, standing nearby as she prepared to follow the others into the cave.


With no resistance from any of her team, Ilyana turns back towards the shadows, unsheathing her sword to reveal the blade's glowing light.  The brilliance of the blade lit the way as she stepped forward into the crevasse and into its shadows.  Soon, only her sword gave way to their surroundings and the path became narrower and narrower.

As an hour passed, their traveling slowed, the small gaps shrinking until Ilyana had to struggle to squeeze through.  Her wings had been put away, her armor was non-existent, but her frame struggled against the small spaces as her sword barely made it easier to see where she had to fit through.  When making it on the other side of the overly-long gap, she reaches back behind her to assist the others, holding out her hands to pull them through.

When she has tugged the group through with less struggle, Ilyana picks her sword up from the floor where she had placed it and holds it up to reveal the deep cave that they now stood, the sound of her sword scraping against the rock beneath it echoing throughout.  The bats above did not move.

She looks back at the others and speaks very softly, quietly, pulling them in close so that each could hear her, "Do not speak unless spoken to.  Do not touch anything.  Do not do or say anything that could be perceived as rude.  And most importantly, do not ask a bunch of questions."

Then, Ilyana turns back around, facing the dark cave before her and holding out her hand with the palm facing up as her fingers are outstretched.  "For Rowenark."

She speaks the name of her long-lost hometown with sadness, remembering the loss of her childhood and mourning it in her heart for a few moments more.  It has been a very long time since she had last spoken its name and even longer still since she had last been here.

As the name was uttered, Ilyana's hand seem to be touching something that rippled in the air before them--the air itself moving like water as the cave trickled away like a rain and light shed through.  The light was blinding, at first, but when their eyes adjusted, the daylight of the blue sky before them revealed the oasis upon which they now stood.

Here, there were weeping willows, a small pond with a flowing river that runs off into the distance, orchards and a garden fenced to the side with a barn far off the ways to the left.  And here, near the pond, a beautiful stone house was in the shade, kept covered by multiple sakura trees as their blossoms contrasted against all of the other green around them.

They now stood before this view in the grass, the pathway before them formed from large, smooth stepping stones carefully and decoratively placed for the ease of walking around the tall grass and the waving wind that softly greets them is cool, welcoming.

With a smile, Ilyana looks up at the sky to find soft clouds here and there, the blues shifting into purples on the horizon.  She steps forward onto the path, moving from stone to stone towards the quaint little house with smoke coming from its chimney.  The flowers on either side of the path look beautiful and the easle upon which art should rest is empty.  It hasn't been used in a long time.

Maetra stills herself, feeling the pang of people entering her zone. Footsteps on a surface that belonged to her beyond the physical realm. She stands, pulling herself up, up, up; towering over lush greens and vibrant hues. Only one knew the password to this place, only one knew of the entrance. But it was not one who entered. The walls of her house sifled the noise, but not entirely. She knew when someone entered her zone. Her eyes do not guide her, her senses do, she feels them, walking, walking- one set of feet, two, three? Four and then five- She's closer now. She opens the door of her house, feeling her 'guests' before her.

"Ilyana," She starts, trying to ignore the following of lost dogs after her. "You've brought guests." While her tone is even, the way she says her last is spiteful, dripping with disdain. She does not know these people, nor does she want these people within her zone, her home. She does not want people here to begin with. Ilyana, Ilyana can stay. And Ilyana alone. But, if they are Ilyana's associates, she can suffer, for a short while.


Ryuko was among the first to the top, having acrobatically leapt the majority of the way, using Ryujin as an occasional grip, conjuring and dispelling him. Upon reaching the top, she stretches, feeling refreshed.

You seem more energetic than usual.

Ryuko laughs with a nod. “It’s been too long since I’ve been climbing. With the spirit of a dragon, you must enjoy mountains yourself, Ryujin.”

Indeed. Though I’m not overly thrilled to be used as a pick axe.

“G-gomen’nasai,” Ryuko says, a bead of sweat upon her brow.

Ryuko eats from her bento at lunch, sitting off to the side, not particularly at a distance from the others, so much as simply out of their way. Her aim being to avoid encroaching upon their space when she needed so little, herself. Upon finishing her rice balls, she packs her food and follows suit, covering the rear as the party follows Ilyana into a difficult-to-spot cave. Upon witnessing the reveal of this secret place, she comes alight with awe. “Sugoi!” she says to herself.

Along the way, she takes notice of the sakura blossoms that bring a warm smile to her face. “Ryujin. Do you remember sitting under the sakura trees on warm days in Nihon? Picinics with Junbei and Ryouma amidst an ocean of pink petals?”

Hai. Those... are good memories.

“Hai,” Ryuko nods.

Upon their encounter with this ‘Maetra’ woman, Ryuko bows her head respectfully out of instinct. She remember Ilyana’s warning, not speaking a word. Her hands remain folded at her lap and she follows quietly. She remains ever alert, and well aware of the aura of disdain pouring from their host, but keeps to herself.

The whole trip from the train was a descent into madness Nymeria had never experienced before in her long time spent on Earth. The climb up the mountain forced her to separate herself longer than she was used to. Every time she extended her hand to reach the next grip, she contentrated to not let her other self let go of the rockface and plumit to an untimely end. The same applied for when Edel reached for something to hold on to. The ascent was met with several near-misses and close calls. She was so embarassed in how incompetent she appeared to the others.

The break at the summit was welcomed, but it preceeded another trial of endurance. Nymeria took the chance to meditate and rejoin under one body, letting the other lie on the ground as if it were sleeping. The group still had a ways to go, and so Nymeria split her concsience once more. The two bodies walked into the cave only inches apart from each other. When Ilyana opened the portal to a tranquil landscape, Nymeria finally felt like they reached their destination. Although she had to admit she wished to let herself fall into the grass and rest for a while.

She held both her and Edel's mouth still when they met the very tall Maetra and her unwelcoming attitude. Nymeria eyed the woman with a weary gaze, yet her view remained fixed on the woman. Both she and Edel looked over the woman in an almost unnaturally synchronized fashion. Nymeria felt her mind slipping every second she remained separated but she fought to keep it together.


Sylmeria followed the others in silence, wondering what their final destination would be. She felt the magic before she could see the faint hint of it she was now able to see, nodding at Ilyana's admonishment for silence. The woman had little to worry about from her.

She watched with detached interest as Ilyana opened the entryway and led them all in. Her breath caught at the sight. It was beautiful.

She saw her awe reflected in the others, which made her feel a little mollified as it made her feel less uncultured. The woman was about as welcoming as Rook when it was the day to work on the books. Sylmeria stayed to the rear, watching but saying nothing.


Ilyana speaks softly, "I brought friends. Everyone, this is Maetra. Maetra, this is everyone. Now that we're all acquainted, why don't you invite us in for tea?"

Maetra stills. Ilyana may have brought these....outsiders into her domain. But she was still Ily. Her Ily. Her expression of composed disdain does not waver.

"Pleasure." Maetra manages with a dull, dead tone, listening to the stilled breaths and nervous heart beats of the group. But she zeroed in on one in particular. As the almost unbelievably tall woman approaches the group, her long, slender arms coiled around her much shorter friends frame- her back stooping, her unskilled, unseeing eyes closing as a pleasant hum rumbled in her chest.

"It's good to see you, Ily." 'Even though you brought guests..' She swallows her pride and her hatred, her eyes opening again but looking at nothing. "But....of course. Inside. The lot of you."

Ilyana smiles with satisfaction, following Maetra and leading her group into the small, quaint home of Maetra's comfort--the place they had imagined together.  It brought back memories...this entire place did.  This was the dream, the home that the two girls had wished for when their hometown was taken from them.

When they each took a seat at the table, Ilyana began to make tea.  She already knew how, she knew where everything was.  It was a simple task and Maetra was quick to grab a snack of some kind--something she had baked?--to place on the table.  There was so much warmth and calm here.  Everything was clean and undamaged.

"Hm," Ilyana says as she puts the last cup of tea on the table and hands another to Maetra, "I love what you've added to the place.  This really is nice, Maetra.  I mean it."

Nymeria and Edel both followed Ilyana without saying a word. They walked in synch, facing forward with glazed eyes. Inside the quaint cabbin, Nymeria couldn't help but feel comfortable. The simple styling took her back to her younger days, before the incident. Her stiff shoulders fell as she took a seat at the table. As Nymeria took in her surroundings, she imagined herself out in the country with her lover. She wanted to concur with Ilyana's compliment, but she held her tounge a second before opening her mouth.

Maetra's fingers glazed over the objects in her house as she want to grab 'snacks' for her 'guests'. There must have been a very, very good reason for Ilyana to bring so many people to her home.  She placed the apple confections on the table. All the time she had spent looking for the perfect fruit, baking it and crisping it to perfection...and now these greedy little outsiders were going to tear through them as though they were nothing.

Typical.

She appreciated Ilyana there, at least. Making tea, her baking Ilyana's favorite treats, it was a dream- or at least it would have been, had Maetra not heard the four additional beady little heartbeats thrumming in her ears. Two seemed to be exactly in synch with each other. Curious.

She slid down into her chair after placing a plate of apple tart in front of Ilyana, her fingers finding the warm cup placed before her. "Thank you, Ily. I thought you might like it." A smile traced her lips as she tilted her head to 'address' the woman, it served her no purpose, but it was a habit, at least for her. "But what brings you here? Quite the arduous journey just to pop in for a visit." The warm liquid touched her lips and she drank, her blank eyes unblinking.

Ilyana smiles to her, taking her hand to show her the nervousness that has brought her here--after all, Ilyana's hands are still trembling and have been ever since her near death experience.  Her boy is still fully healing, her connection to the Archon weakened.

"I almost died, Mae," Ilyana says softly, "And if I don't get that key, you will, too.   I can't let that happen."

Maetra's face contorts; in anger, indignance. Both her hands clasp over her friends, her poor, poor Ily's. Ily was always brave, strong, resolute, but she was still a human, a person, a wounded woman like her beneath it all. And though it took much to shake her, Maetra would have dont anything to put her friend more at ease.

"Who," The words hissed from her teeth. Why, why was she asking? She would have been able to do nothing about it. She scooched her chair closer, pulling herself closer to her friend. How dare this...heathen, this...scum threaten her friend. She cringes, gaining herself back from her anger. "So you're content to throw yourself back into danger? You know I refuse to stand for that, Ily."

Ilyana shakes her head, "No.  I'm just hiding it elsewhere.  That is all.  It's too dangerous and way too obvious to have any keys remain in the hands of Guild Master.  We've already lost one because of it."

Maetra was never a woman to care about the common world of men or their earthly affairs, but whatever had been happening seemed to have Ilyana shaken; very shaken. Obviously or she wouldn't have made the journey here. It was a shame that the only time she really got to see her friend was in times of crisis.

"What place is safer than what I have created? If the person who, need I remind you, apparently almost killed you wants it so badly, the moment you leave the place I have created you will be in danger." She clasps her hands tightly. "Ily, I know you love your guild, you love your world of men and you love your people- and while I know what your answer will be, you could stay here with me. These people who want this...key, they would have no further reason to look for you, and they'd never find mine, they don't even have a reason to suspect where it's hidden."

Sylmeria listened, hanging back by the door. The woman reminded her of her Aunt Persephone. Her aunt had been one of the most ornery people she'd ever met. Even if she liked you, the most you got was...a less sharp tongue.

The woman looked like sharing her food was pulling teeth, so Sylmeria abstained from grabbing anything, taking care to listen. She didn't understand this key business, but she was sure it was important.


Ryuko listens intently, being sure never to look at either woman directly. She remains unmoving, her head slightly bowed, her eyes shut, and her hands folded as if meditating.

Ryuko.

‘Nani?’

Is it not rude to leave the food your host has prepared untouched?

Ryuko shakes her head. ‘Īe. I’m well acquainted with Maetra-san’s expression. My master’s wife wore it proudly in my presence. She doesn’t wish us to have it. She’s only offering it to be accommodating.’ Ryuko opens her eyes for a moment, looking at nothing in particular. ‘Although I’m uncertain I could eat at the moment, regardless.’

What do you mean?

‘Even as a guest, I feel an intruder. It’s been some time since I’ve experienced that. Except we don’t intend to stay because we need Ilyana-san. She obviously means a great deal to Maetra-san. I’m imagining strangers suddenly appearing to take away all those you care for.’

A subject on which you can speak from experience.

‘…Hai.’

Ilyana shakes he read again, "I am sorry, Mae. I have too many promises to keep. Too many responsibilities. And I cannot leave you as the key holder when you aren't. So, all I need is thr zone location and the entrance pass key. After that, I'll be out of your hair."

Maetra's grip on her friends hand tightened as she looked at her pleadingly with dead eyes.

"Ily, you don't need to keep throwing yourselves to the wolves for this. These promises can't be fulfilled if you're dead." The word briefly caught in her throat as her expressioned tried to harden itself to stoicism again. Her voice grew quiet for a moment. "I will give you a map and the key but I just....beg you to reconsider."

Ilyana sighs, "As you love me, I love you--but I also love the people that you so despise.  Duty calls.  I will come back, after this is settled.  You and I, we'll...we'll visit for a while.  Deal?"

Maetra grumbled slightly, the picture of a curmudgeony hermit. She strokes the back of Ilyana's hand one last time before standing to retrieve the map to the zone Ilyana was asking after. "Yes, yes; duty always calls. I'll hold you to that. And if you bring any more of your..." Her eyes narrowed as her voice dripped with disgust. "guild mates; there better be a very good reason and either way I shall be very cross." Ilyana's stutter worried her; but so did everything the woman did. She was a regular force of nature, that one. It was almost tiring to keep up with. But she could hardly complain.

She briefly disappeared behind a fold out screen; reappearing holding an immaculate looking scroll. She handed it out, using both hands, to Ilyana.

"The password is-" She caught herself, hearing the thrumming heartbeats of the little vermin that had followed her in. She bent over, her voice a whisper only Ilyana could hear. "'Build me a better dream'."

She straightened herself, her lips pressing into a fine, unhappy line.

"Thanks, Mae," Ily says with a smile, "I'm taking these treats with me.  We'll get out of here right away."

Maetra managed a small, sad little wave to her friend as she gathered her belongings, and pets.

"Anytime." Her expression tried to remain hard, stoic, but it flickered as she heard the distinct noise of Ilyana's steps. "Come back safe, Ily. The world would be a terribly pointless place without you."[/i]

Whitecker Town/Church - 3h45~5h30


(ATTN : Ryushi's quarters)

**This is a collab between me and Leah7**

''Ryushi moved over to the tiny appartment place he was at earlier. ''We can take a seat at the table to relax. Want me to prepare some tea ?'' He asked Nadleeh with a smile.

"Yeah," Nadleeh says tiredly, "We have a lot of reading to do.  I've got so much to cover, still.  This is going to take hours."

Ryushi nods and start preparing tea, he was a little tired himself still. ''Thank you so much Nadleeh for looking into your church. ''  He came to take a seat while he was waiting on the water.

Eaden went on the table and sat down looking at Nadleeh and then going to give her a little headbutt of affection on her arm.

''Sometimes I wonder if you're a cat rather then a fox.'' Ryushi said thinking it was adorable.

''I am a majestic beast, I am not a cat !'' Eaden expressed to then be distracted by a feather Ryushi was holding and swinging around. He finally gave in, grabbed it and started to play with it.

Ryushi chuckled and started to take a book from Nadleehs pile to start checking.

Nadleeh shakes her head, pulling out the book she had already started on.  The initial book that had attracted her attention.  This one had a list of primary "transfer symbols" on it.  She had been trying to disect them and find a possible meaning behind the one under the Guild Hall.  She started turning the pages almost immediately after taking a seat, looking intently into the symbols with focus.

Ryushi let her get focused and only got up to go prepare the tea. He served her a tea cup and one for himself too and he started focusing into the book he had as well, although slightly curious of the one Nadleeh had picked up.

It was almost an hour before Nadleeh turned the book around to face Ryushi, an index finger pointing between different symbols as she spoke, "I can see parts of the words 'Stalwart' and 'Shift' in the symbol....I just wish I could see the symbol's center so we could find any other meanings within it."

Ryushi took his head out of his book and looked where Nadleeh was pointing out. ''You mean what is basically hidden by the building ? But yes this is looking a lot like what we have under there.... mmm... stalwart and shift uh ? Given the fact that it's transfer magic maybe that symbol part is talking of how it transfer, but you're right depending on the middle it could mean many things.  Depends on the context as well.'' Ryushi was thinking some more on what the missing words and symbols could be.

Nadleeh nods, "I'm just glad I'm not seeing anything similar to 'destroy' or 'immolate,' to be honest.  I expected that more than anything else, yet it would appear that nothing seems malicious, here.  I'm relieved, but I also think maybe it's too early to be relieved."

''For sure, it's too soon to be relieved. Especially the way it's connected to all realms. But at least we're starting to find a bit of clues now. Though that said, shift could stand for shifting between realms maybe ? Although that is just an hypothesis, but maybe that would be one of the fonction. '' Ryushi said a bit before drinkin some tea from the second batch he had made not long ago.

Nadleeh frowns, "There's just not enough information, here.  I'm just...gonna keep reading.  Anything good on your end?"

''Getting more information on how transfer magic is used and it has a few example of different types that are used by magi. ''  He says showing his book for a bit.

"Woah," Nadleeh says, "Blood magic?  BLOOD magic?  Just the thought of that kind of magic creeps me out.  How is that even transfer magic?  What does that have to do with the spirit realm?  I can't wait to read that one..."

''Yeah I was a little surprised too when I saw that part..... '' Ryushi said shaking his head as he stood up to go grab cookies he was hiding in a pot on the counter. Thankfully Eaden had fallen asleep, so he wouldn't bother him about the cookies for now. Plus the little guy already had some earlier. ''Want some Nadleeh ?'' They seemed to  be nature tea cookies, Ryushi took one and left the pot on the table for her to take some if she needed a snack. .

Nadleeh takes some cookies and another a drink of tea, "Goddess, I am so tired.  Vioria gives me strength, but I don't know about stamina.  I saw some of those other Guild members and that girl....she's insane.  I mean, are you sure about pulling other people into this?  What if messing with this symbol business gets someone killed?"

''I'm concerned too, but I feel like we'll need all the help we can get and honestly I would let them help more so with headbashing if need be then symbol traps. Still they offered to help and at this point I most certainly won't turn down someone who wants to help. We're pretty overwhelmed by this and a lot of us are lacking proper sleep trying to quickly resolve the issue. In fact I myself got scold by a few guildmates yesterday. I almost passed out from exaustion and they rushed me over to bed.'' Ryushi said with a sigh. ''I don't want to overstep our welcome here as well, lots of people seems a bit weary of us magi being gathered here. '' He said looking worried.

Nadleeh half-frowns, "You're taking too much on your shoulders, Master."

Ryushi nods and says ''I know I do, but I feel that I must in this situation. Everyone is working hard, I should too. Tired or not. '' He drinks more tea and tries to see what else he could be finding inside the book he was holding.

Nadleeh leans over in her chair, placing her hand on her Master's hand, "No matter the situation, you must be at your best for those that you are leading--and you must be well rested to be at your best.   As Vioria would say, 'Intelligence is in knowing our limitations as One, Wisdom is expanding those limitations as Many.'  We mustn't forget that we are a family.  Perhaps we should stop and take a break."

Nadleeh stands, her decision already made, "Actually.  I'll take off my armor.  My uniform.  We can...play a game, you and I.  With anyone you want.  We're going to relax."

Ryushi was surprised when Nadleeh placed her hand on his own and started to say this. He looks down for a few seconds and then back to her. ''I guess you're right, I'll just take quick notes of what we had going so far .... but yes it probably would be best for everyone to take a break and relax ... I might have myself pushed the guild a little too far with this. '' He said with a sigh. ''I'll call it a break for everyone in a few minutes.... as for who to play with.... that is a good question. Depends what game we're going for he said with a small smile. ''

Nadleeh smiles, "Great!  Um....well, there's dodgeball.  Rassuk.  And we could play card games, too.  We could have groups of people playing different card games--I know Valentino always has cards on him and we could collect different sets from the town."

''I wouldn't mind watching members play dodgeball, but I think I'll stick with cards.'' Ryushi said with a small chuckle. ''If I played dodgeball I'd probably break something as fragile as I can be physically.''

Nadleeh laughs, "We'll set up different games, then.  It'll be fun to watch while we use the cards.  I'll go on out and get some preparations started."

Ryushi smiled to her and said ''Nadleeh ?..... thanks. Would you be so kind to ask a few people to give the words of the break ? I think I'll go take a 30 minutes nap while preparations are made, if it's okay.''

"Yep," Nadleeh says, grinning widely from under her cloak, "Consider it handled.  I'll wake you when things are ready to get started."

''Ryushi smiles and nods. ''I'll go lay down in the bed further back then. Thank you. '' He grabbed Eaden gently to bring him in the bed as well, being careful not to wake him. He lay down and cover himself with the blankets, falling asleep almost instantly.

Aer town/White Cross Guildhall/On the way to Whitecker - 4PM~5PM


(ATTN : Open, Lark ?)

**This is a collab between me and Leah7**

Ryla and Rodimus traveled from Sherehazade for eight long days. These days however weren't without events, but it was often mostly caused by Ryla being overly excited. It was always her being ''RODDY LOOOOK ISN'T THAT AMAZING ?!'' pointing out to stuff on the way. Thankfully they didn't come across anything dangerous like bandits or else. Their trip had been long, but went smoothly.  And here they were eight days later, passing the entrance of Aer town that was pretty close to White Cross.

Rodimus did thoroughly enjoy their travels, but the lack of welcome from Aer Town was unexpected and unpleasant.  As they walked through, most kept their distance, refused to talk or answer questions, and glared.  At first, he thought it was a mage thing, but when he saw how most were still within their homes, windows locked and doors shut tight, he realized that it was probably much more.  How could such a place be so....cold?

During their eight days, they had stumbled across so many people--most those that were kind.  Due to his status, as well as Ryla's kindness, they had been offered tents for the night, as well as offers to share a meal around the campfire.  Traveling took its toll and Rodimus had been luck, considering how limited his food was.  The long walk was not as bad as he expected, thanks to those kindnesses and Ryla was always good company.  He has learned a lot about her during their travels, an easy task for him, it would seem.  And, as it turns out, Ryla has a lot of knowledge regarding merchant travel pathways, which helped them a lot.

Now, he had his share of unpleasant encounters like the next person, but it rarely occured in an entire freaking town.  The fact that these folks didn't want anything to do with outsiders meant that something....was off.  Even their tavern was shut down--which meant that they were welcoming, once upon a time.  So what changed?

As they started to go further in town, Ryla wondered why the people were soooo distant. ''OH MY GOSH.... do you think there's a mystery murder thing going on ?'' She gasped and then continued ''OR MAYBE GHOSTS ?!'' She seemed a little overly excited about the way things were, but her mood when quickly shifted to a dissapointed onet as she said the rest. ''The atmosphere is so weiiiiiiiiiiiird  and heavy !!! I wanted to geek out and shop a bit before heading to the guild. '' Ryla pouts, a little unhappy now. Even the tavern was closed and she would die for a steak right about now.

"Whatever it is," Rodimus says, "We will do best to avoid getting ourselves into it.  Looks like trouble."

''BUT Rodddiiiii, what about the steaaaaaaaaaaaaak ..... I wanted a steaaak so baaaad....'' Ryla said still mourning her steak craving that was going byebye.

Rodimus pats Ryla on the head, "I'll make you a steak back at the Guild."

''YESSSSSSS RODDI YOU'RE THA BEST !!!'' She said with stars in her eyes. ''So like I guess we'll go straight to the guild for now ? Doesn't look like we have much of a choice in the matter.'' Ryla said with a sigh.

"Yep," Rodimus replies, placing his arm around her shoulders, "Let's get outta here."

Ryla nods and then turn slightly toward the horsies. ''C'mon you two, just a little bit longer !!''

About 30 minutes later, they were finally in front of the guild hall they travelled long to get to. Only to find out there was caution signs and tapes here and there all around the guild hall. There seemed to be some kind of mark or symbols on the ground around the guild and..... a ghost at the entrance ?! '' OH MY GOSH ?! WHAT HAPPENED HERE ?! And .... She got closer a bit to the circle, but stayed outside for now, but looking straight at the ghost. ''CAN I PLEASE SHAKE YOUR HAND ?! The idea of shaking hands with a ghost just seems fantastic !!!''

Zeddicus floated there with simplicity, pleasantly asleep.  When Ryla spoke with excitement, his blue light jerked up from surprise into the air and then back down as he spoke with his hauntingly soft and slow voice, "Many apologies.  I did not see you........I am Zeddicus and..... I will happily take...your hand of friendship, young....lady."

Rodimus looks at the spirit with an incredulous look, scratching the back of his neck as Ryla jumps up to shake the thing's hand.  He doesn't understand her sudden familiarity with such a strange, unknown creature, but he accepts it.  It is unsurprising for one so odd to be so abrasive to even a ghost.  It is a ghost, right?

"I'm Rodimus Penn of Ferrum and this is Ryla Tarslen of Sheherazade.  By the signs, I guess we're going to Whitecker?"  Rodmis says as the two shake hands.

"Yes," Zedd replies simply.

Has Ryla shook hand with the ghosty form, a vision came to her. She saw a girl with a pink and black pixie haircut working on the armor he is currently wearing. It looked like the girl was enchanting it for him to be able to be present in the real realm. It was pretty interesting. When the vision stopped, she let go of the ghost's hand and says ''THAT WAS AWESOME OH MY GOSH, I shook hands with a ghost !! The contact is cold, but so interesting and thanks for the info Zeddy ! '' Although her excitement was once again dying down by a little bit when she learned they had to move AGAIN. When could she have her beloved steak ?!

Rodimus nods his head, "Thanks, Zeddicus.  Much appreciated.  We'll be on our way."

Zeddicus floated closer to the ground with calm, "Thank you...for visiting...."

And so the company moved toward Whitecker using their horses to go a little faster. On the way there, Ryla express her concern to Rodimus. ''That was ...... weeeeeiiiird. I don't think I ever saw a mark like that before. ''

"Mark?"  Rodimus asks, his mind still on the ghost.  Then it clicks.  The symbol burned into the ground.  "Oh.  Right.  I've seen one.  Once.  Burned like that--but the symbol didn't look the same or anything.  If magic is burned into the earth, it means that it will effect an area, so I'm sure it is an area of effect spell.  I wonder if one of the White Cross had it placed?"

''Mmmm..... I dunno maybe ? Still it's weird none of them are home either. Guess we'll find out when we get there. '' Ryla says looking exausted from all those problems.

ATTN: Ilyana's group
Maetra's dimension

When it was finally time to depart, Nymeria and Edel both snatched their own tarts and headed straight for the door in single file. Even though the pastries were made by a bitter old spinster, Nymeria couldn't let good food go to waste. She took a bite as the group put distance between them and Maetra's house. The tarts were so good that she ended up wolfing them down in only a few bites. Well, that was quite unladylike of me. She thought to herself as she licked the crumbs off her fingers. If I were Ilyana, I would stay here just for the food. Peculiar friend she's got, but I can't say I'm not jealous. When the group were about to leave the parallel dimension, she leaned in to whisper to the rest of the group.

"Is it just me, or did that woman seem a little...perturbed at our presence?"

{ATTN: Elizabeth, Reiza, Open }
Tavran Ruins Unknown
--

Reiza was down on the ground, sliding down as soon as Daisan lifted up her pants.  Had the injury not been there, she would have kicked the man in the throat for lifting her clothing or touching her without prior permission.  However, in this situation, she understood the hurry and she let it go, this time.  After he dressed the wound, she thanked him, hissing inwards against the pain.  Daisan had to remind her to breathe when he tended to it.

She can feel the scratching against her walls, the scratch marks being left upon them grating at her ears.  It's not painful to her mana...yet.  However, she can tell that it won't take them long to eat through it.  She looks back towards the door they had entered from.  If she gets them through there...the things could escape into the main room and even follow them up the platform.  If she doesn't, they are trapped in here with them.

Maybe the third button would...harm them?  But what if it hurt them, too?  What if the third button is just to turn off the lights or something else that's entirely useless?  What are her options?  She looks around the room, searching.  There aren't many, that's for damn sure.  She can't fight what she can't see...

"Ideas?"  Reiza asks as Daisan moves to give aid to Elizabeth.

“Is your shield stationary or can you move it with you?  If you want I can try the third indentation?”  Daisan proposed.  He hates the idea of just leaving with more questions than answers. “Can it be used with Elizabeth’s teleportation magic?  Too bad we had nothing for a smoke screen so we can at least detect the creature.”


Reiza hesitates, "I can move myself with a singular, smaller barrier."

Normally Elizabeth wouldn't let anyone touch her. Knowing why Daisan is touching her doesn't make it much better. Daisan dresses her wound, she hisses at the pain. "I can change the size of the portal, but I can't make it too small. Otherwise you won't be able to go through it. So if you don't go all the way through it, you won't go anywhere. I know it's not much use right now."

Daisan scratches his chin.  “I don’t want you to risk yourself ladies.  Reiza if I step out of the barrier, can I come back in?  Elizabeth do you have to be the one teleporting, or can you teleport others?”  He turns and looks at the keyholes.  He does not want to leave empty handed.  He does not need all the information, but a clue as to how he got this pendant.


Reiza nods, "She can teleport others.  You do what you have to do--but be quick."

“You don’t have to tell me twice.”  Daisan chuckles nervously.  “I want to activate the third lock.  If you have any issues with that let me know now.”  He sets up the key in his hand.  “Whenever you are ready I am Elizabeth.”


"Ok. Where do you want me to place them?. One in here obviously, but what about the other one?" Elizabeth went to stand up getting ready to open a portal wherever it needed to be. She tried to be careful not to reopen the wound.


“One inside here and the other right outside the key place.  That way I can get in and out.” Daisan instructs her.  He waits until the portals are set up then goes through them.  He places his key in the last slot.


Reiza watches as Elizabeth opens up her portals and Daisan steps through alone.  He places the key into the indentation and she watches in horror as a deep gash forms along his back from his right shoulder down to his lower spine.  She doesn't get much time to see what happens to him, unfortunately.  The purpose of the third indentation, as its color shifts from a flashing red to a solid purple becomes clear.

The white lights along the walls shift colors from a bright white into a purple light--yet, everything looks strange, causing certain colors upon her clothing to glow brilliantly like one has never seen before.  Reiza doesn't have much time to see how she looks or how anything looks--what she does see are the monsters.

These creatures, too, glow like one has never seen before.  The lights now seem to accentuate the patterns painted upon their bodies, the strange lines and dots around them moving along every curve and every muscle of them.  And there isn't just one--there's a dozen of these fuckers!  With a shriek, Reiza is forced to deal with the matter at hand--one has gone through the portal and into her box.

She drops the box immediately--it is pointless now.  Several sheets of red energy--though she can't see those sheets in this light-- are formed around her body, forming a second, blocky, shield-like skin that is almost against her.  Unfortunately, it is a few inches away and each plate of red has gaps aroudn the edges, leaving plenty of room for weaknesses and openings.  She's always known this, but if she's quick, she can get through this.

The room is dark again, somehow--it's hard to see, but the creatures aren't hard to see at all.   Reiza forms another, individual box around both Elizabeth and Diasan--two boxes that are somewhat small and very cramped around their bodies.  They are both severely hurt, but she doesn't have time to deal with that.  She doesn't have time to pay attention to their conditions.

She looks around the room, gathering her surroundings as she takes in her new battlefield:  Two are still climbing out of the case.  Five are scratching at the boxes that she has now safeguarded her allies within.   One had lost an arm as she put the boxes down--the severed arm now keeping Daisan company.  Yum.  Their blood is a glowing, brilliant, neon green within the darkness, as well.  Gross.

Three are on their way, crawling towards her on the floor and two are up on the ceiling, moving about in ways that make her not only incredibly panicked, but uncertain.  They will flank her, surround her when given the opportunity.  That much is certain.  These strange, spiny, dog-like creatures were arched on all fours, with incredibly long limbs with spiked backs and threateningly long claws.  Reiza had to decide her next move.

Attn: Open, Gale, Zero; Whitecker Town]


Claire gave a two finger salute to Ham as he left to talk with the one's who were in charge. She looked to Gale and Zero and smiled. "Well you guys are stuck with me so let's do some work. We should probably see if we can make ourselves useful and get to helping with the Whitecross group here. They could use some help it seems."
She said.

The three of them walked around to see what they could do to help out. There are people setting up tents, passing out food, setting up places to rest and places to get help if they were hurt. Claire stops someone and asks them where they could be of use at. A woman pointed over to a tent where they were dishing out food. "They needed some help over there earlier. They were just getting started.
I'm sure you could be of use there." She said before walking away.

Claire looked at Zero and Gale. "Well, it looks like we might be helping at the food stand. Come on, we need to see if they need us before moving on." She said.

They make their way over to the food stand where they ask for the one in charge. Quintin is running around trying to get things set up,
short of help. He stops when someone brings them to him and lifts their eyebrow. "Can I help you?

"Yes, we were wondering if you needed any help. We are from Infinity Edge and were wondering if we could give you any help while we were here." Claire said.

Quintin sighed. "Thenk the heavens. I could use the help. Here,
You get in line and start serving the meat, you serve drinks, and you set up supplies with me." He said.

The three of them hurry and get ready and get in line where they need to be.
